MSc Clinical Science by Research

Course Description

Course Outline

Qualified physicians wishing to gain hands-on, cutting edge laboratory experience in areas of unmet clinical need can spend a year in the University’s Clore Laboratory prior to joining the MD programme working towards an MSc in Clinical Science. This is a research degree for which you will submit a thesis and be examined by viva voce.

We have interest in a number of areas, including: fetal programming of obesity and diabetes, mechanisms of insulin sensitisation, pancreatic islet cell biology, regulation of energy expenditure, biomedical imaging, bioinformatics and cutaneous pathogenesis. Some recently completed MSc research includes:

- Mechanisms of pancreatic islet neogenesis
- Restoration of β-cell function using thiazolidinediones
- Use of RNAi technology to investigate mechanisms of insulin signalling in pancreatic islet s

A variety of projects are available in these and other areas.

Supported by postdoctoral scientists, you will gain valuable experience in a range of techniques in molecular and cellular biology while being fully-integrated into a research environment. You will have access to state of the art equipment, including RNAi technology, Real-time PCR, cell culture and histology (including an Aperio whole-slide digital pathology platform). Critical thinking, communication skills and understanding of the scientific method are encouraged through regular presentation at lab meetings and the preparation of your thesis.

Applicants need not have prior laboratory experience, but we encourage you to contact Dr Kenneth Langlands prior to application to discuss potential projects.
